There's still the idea that Trump won by less of the vote than other Republican candidates lost by. If this is true, then enthusiasm for the nominee may be the more important issue than pulling in the people in the middle who could go either way. Sure, it still has to be in those states, but maybe the way to do it is to get more young people in those states enthused enough to vote.

To me, it always seems the candidate who inspires the most enthusiasm wins--at least, in my lifetime. I don't mean the most fervent supporters, but the one that can get the most people excited. While people hated Trump, he got more people excited that Clinton did. Same with Obama, both Bushes, and Bill Clinton.

I'm really still pulling for someone who can make Democrats excited to vote again.
